Local stories featuring Mrs Murals
I'm passionate about supporting the local community through my business wherever I can. Here are some examples...
Lifting spirits at the start of the pandemic
In April 2020 I painted on my driveway wall to lift spirits in my local community. There were Anemone flowers to symbolise protection against illness and Snowdrops to symbolise hope. I painted the flowers in British red, white and blue to boost morale. I also started a pop up pantry for elderly neighbours who were unable to get supplies from the shops.
World Earth Day project
In Spring 2023 The Broadway Plymstock commissioned public murals in honour of World Earth Day on the walls of Iceland and Poundland in the busy shopping centre entrance. I created designs that celebrated nature and were interactive, at the same time as being thought-provoking and raising awareness of declining UK species.
Help for DCFA
During the summer of 2020 the demands for local foodbanks went up significantly due to the economic impact of the pandemic. I supported local food bank Devon and Cornwall Food Action by donating a large sign for their warehouse. I also made a donation to the charity for every mural commissioned in July.
Brightening the streets of Stonehouse
As part of a project organised by Plymouth's Cliik Community through Plymouth's Artists Together (PAT), it was a pleasure to help tackle graffiti and improve the look of the streets of North Stonehouse. I painted 2 of the green BT boxes, one as the blue house and one with a sunflower and bee. We received an enormous amount of positive feedback from locals, passers by and on social media. I hope to be involved in more community projects like this.
Do you have a project you'd like me to get involved in?
